SuperGirl Snow Pro Takes Over Big Bear
The Supergirl Snow Pro series comes to California’s Bear Mountain Resort for two days of the world’s only all-female snowboarding competition and lifestyle series event March 9-10.
The event is designed to not only showcase the best female snowboarders on the planet competing in snowboardcross and big air, but also to also serve as a developmental contest to help locate, nurture, mentor, and encourage the next generation of aspiring snowboarding pros.
The U.S. Snowboard Team’s own 10-time X Games gold medalist and six-time FIS World Champion Lindsey Jacobellis (Stratton Mountain, Vt.) serves as the event host and inspirational leader.
"I started this event when I was inspired after attending the Supergirl Surf event,” said Jacobellis. “It was such an amazing event to be involved in and it had a huge support system for the growth of women in sports. After that weekend I told ASA Entertainment that I needed to bring this to snowboarding and more importantly to snowboardcross. I wanted to help the development of snowboardcross with the younger generation of girls coming up in the sport and create an environment that they could thrive in, while also making lifelong friendships with girls all over the world."
Rick Bratman, the CEO of ASA Entertainment and executive producer of the Supergirl Pro Series, also shared his excitement for the event.
“The Supergirl Snow Pro is one of the most gratifying events we are involved in given its long history of creating a strong platform for women and the unique format where pros and amateurs interact and compete together as teammates,” said Bratman. “Having the event rooted in mentorship and watching the top pros supporting the next generation of female riders is truly inspirational. Knowing that it's the only all-female snowboarding competition in the world adds another layer to its importance and aligns well with the Supergirl Pro Series’ mission of both empowering and providing opportunity for women in sports, entertainment, popular culture, media, education and business.”
The Supergirl Snow Pro is truly unique and offers opportunities for young women from all over the world to develop their skills, network and learn from some of the best riders in the world. The event has clearly left an impression with last year’s amatuer competitors.
“It was one of the most amazing experiences of my life,” said 2018 Amatuer champion Kayci Deitsch. “Being able to compete out of my country allowed me to meet new competition and create new friendships I never thought that I would in my lifetime. It’s incredible to be able to snowboard alongside my biggest role models in this sport. For the rest of my life I will be thankful for the opportunity that I had at my very first Supergirl Snow Pro. Also, It’s an honor to compete again at the competition in 2019. Coming back will be cool to see all the riders, whether they are from the previous year or if they are new. I will approach this year with excitement and optimism. I am excited to share my experience with the new comers and just have fun.”
Although the Supergirl series is in it’s 13th year and Supergirl Pro Snow in it’s 9th, 2019 is setting up to be something special. The event’s Festival Village includes live concerts, female DJ’s, speakers, and other female-driven entertainment. The music lineup includes Samantha Ronson’s band Ocean Park Standoff and Disney star Meg Donnelly. If the entertainment isn’t enough, feast your eyes on the competitions to watch more than 30 female pros compete including U.S. Snowboard Team members and Olympians, as well as 60 top amateurs. Last but not least, it is all for a good cause as the event supports Boarding for Breast Cancer and the SoCal Mountains Foundation.The event is free to attend for all patrons so head up to Big Bear or tune in live to catch all the action.
